    Amazon helps you make bombs

    OK, this is a weird part of our modern world. I actually found this out when I wanted to buy Potassium Nitrate (common food preservative, but also a components in many explosive recipes) to make corned beef, and Amazon suggested I might want to buy some bomb making ingredients.

    Amazon's artificial intelligence makes lists of stuff "frequently bought together" and that can remind the wannabe bomb maker to get ball bearings, rat poison, and timing devices for their explosives.

    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    That's actually sort of hillarious. A little scary but still highly entertaining.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    Yeah - when you leave the thinking to amoral electronics, you get amoral thoughts.
